An idyllic place to enjoy a picnic, bushwalk or to relax in the waters
Located in the striking Borunda National Park, near North Tura in the beautiful Sapphire Coast (Far South Coast) of New South Wales, Bournda Lagoon is an ideal spot for the perfect weekend getaway to relax with the family or have a romantic weekend away.

There are an array of attractions and activities to enjoy from swimming, fishing, paddling to indulging with a picnic among the paperbarks. Bournda Lagoon is usually a calm, warm swimming hole, however, it can occasionally open to the ocean.

Bournda Lagoon makes a wonderful day out with the kids, as the Lagoon is a safe environment for children to swim and paddle a canoe or kayak to their heart's content.

Fringing Bournda Lagoon is an avenue of paperbarks and cascades of impressive giant honey myrtles that grow down to the shore, creating a secluded and natural wonderland of bushland and tranquillity, making it an idyllic place to picnic and enjoy the sheltered and shallow Lagoon.

Swans are often seen on the Lagoon and sea eagles can be seen flying overhead as they hunt along the coastline. Wallabies and kangaroos also call Bournda Lagoon home and can be seen relaxing (or feasting) around the Lagoon.

Bournda Lagoon and Walking Track offers a fun-filled day filled with swimming, fishing, stunning scenery, wildlife experiences, breathtaking walks and relaxation, making it the ideal family-friendly attraction in Bournda National Park.

There are also plenty of shady spots for a picnic or you can just relax and enjoy the tranquillity.

Bournda Lagoon is a short easy walk from the carpark and is easily accessible. The Track is wide and shady and slowly winds down to the edge of the wonderful Lagoon. It is around a 5 minute walk.
